most of the aftermarket parts are ordered from overseas in Japan or HK... Speedtech carries some Square parts for the car as well.

Don't know..here's the specs to the Twister..
http://www.hotbodiesonline.net/04reedyrace.html

I've had very bad experience with the quantums...mine went up in smoke after 2 runs... will never buy one again. I've had my twister since the Pro4 was released...and not a single problem. I also have the handheld setting adapter as well as the PC adapter... you can program different frequencies in 32 steps.

I've just bought some Jet Steering Knuckles and C-Hubs from Asia Tees and it was a very good service and the best thing is that there was no customs charge!!
I'll be running them for the first time at Don Valley this friday if it's on so you can come and have a look if you want

Asia Tees is cost bit more than other store. They also have Jet parts sale on ebay and cheaper than their own store.

BTW, not many people know that PrecisionRC can get Jet parts as well because not listed on their website. I got most of my Jet parts and Square parts from them. Just contact James from PrecisionRC, he can get most of parts in one day. He also give discount too.

I'm looking for new ball cups to replace the slightly whimpy stock ball cups. I noticed that Hara has used RPM ball cups on his pro4. I've looked on the RPM site but could not find any cups for the Pro4 4.3 ball ends.

Can anybody help me out? If not RPM stuff, then what do you guys use to upgrade the stock ball cups?
Using Hpi Heavy Duty Ball cups of same length.

The reason I bought from AsiaTees is that they seemed to be the only people who had the parts I wanted in stock at that time. I didn't know PrecisionRC sold Jet parts too.

Man, thatís is sorry for me to hear this!
I just bought a LRP QC2 and was debating to get the Twister. The only reason I went with the QC2 becuz Iím new to the whole electric T.C. and wanted something easy to put in the car and go. Also I didnít want to buy anything else to program it like the Twister/KO.


Well, we're see if i made a good purchase or not.........

What's the largest spur gear you can put in the pro4? Also has anyone played with 48 Pitch?

I told you Punisher to get the twister!

I run nothing but 48P. If you are after the largest 48P spur possible its 75T

Cheers,
